Hi there, the worn Taylor Swift is on the phone. On Friday (April Thirteen, Swift’s lucky quantity), the singer paused her Repute Tour rehearsals to present us with a two-tune package as section of the Spotify Singles sequence. And heaps more and heaps to Swifties’ shock and enjoyment, the contemporary songs level to Aged Taylor is nonetheless very remarkable alive and kickin’.
First up, Swift recorded an acoustic model of her single “Cushy,” which is as honest and simple as you’d query. The categorical shock came with Swift’s other tune: a evenly countrified duvet of Earth, Wind & Fire’s R&B-funk classic “September.” Whereas theirs used to be more “dance ground anthem,” Swift’s is more “warmth coffeehouse ballad” — she slathers the song in banjos and lets her breathy vocals take care of these iconic “ba de ya’s.”
The opposite basic alteration Swift made to the tune is a key lyric substitute. As a replace of the outlet line, “Make you be conscious the twenty first evening of September,” Swift flipped the date, singing, “the 28th evening of September.” Per week’s distinction would perhaps presumably seem unremarkable, nonetheless that is Taylor Swift we’re talking about: an artist famed for sneaking easter eggs into her lyrics. As such, fans were speculating that September 28 is the anniversary of Swift’s relationship along with her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. There’s no strategy of intriguing for sure, nonetheless an announcement about the Spotify duvet notes that Swift chose to duvet “September” for “sentimental reasons,” so who knows!
